Research paper published

Our research paper reporting quantitative evidence for the benefits of the Moving the Goalposts programme, has been published in Evaluation and Program Planning. The research shows that members attending activities at longer established MTG leaguefields in the programme experience greater benefits in terms of positive thoughts and feelings, and that members at fields in the rural areas benefit as much from the programme as those who are near head office.
